same. senior international correspondent fred pleitgen, interesting reporting from the "wall street journal" saying the u.s. and iran were misreading one another, further complicating this confrontation. good morning. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, dave, and misreading each other, possibly continue to go misread with both sides thinking the other might be trying to start offensive operations and both sides apparently thinking that they are the ones who are on the defense. in all, this of course a lot of potential for miscalculation in an area, especially there in the persian gulf where the u.s. and iranian forces are always in close proximity, and continue to be so and in the wider region adds well. iran's foreign minister saying at this point in time, there are not going to be any negotiations with the trump administration but essentially what the iranians saying is that they want the u.s. to take away some of the punishing sanctions that the trump administration has put on iran.
2:03 am
the iranians want to sell their oil on international markets. they want companies for instance from europe to be able to invest in iran without having to fear the wrath of the united states or american sanctions. in an ideal world, they are saying they want the u.s. to get back into the nuclear agreement. of course we know current trump white house that's not necessarily something that is going to happen anytime soon, at least if you believe the officials in the trump white house. now, as far as that new intelligence is concerned, we haven't heard anything officially from the iranians about claims that are being made. there was an interesting nugget, from iran's ambassador to the un. he said iran is not preparing for any sort of conflict but wants to be prepared in case a conflict starts again. the iranians say they are the ones in a defensive posture, back to what we were saying at the beginning, a lot of potential for miscalculation in this volatile region. >> there sure is.
2:04 am
fred pleitgen live, 1:33 p.m. in iran. attorney general bill barr says explanations he has been given for the origin of the russia probe don't hang together. his words. barr telling fox news during a visit to el salvador he has more questions today than when he first started investigating the investigation. people have to find out what the government was doing during that period, if we're worried about foreign influence for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale. and so i'm not saying that happened, but i'm saying that we have to look at that. >> cnn reporting earlier this week that barr has appointed a top federal prosecutor to look into the genesis of the russia investigation. barr has enlisted the help of the cia and director of national intelligence. new details about michael flynn's cooperation with special counsel robert mueller. unsealed court records show the former national security adviser
2:05 am
flagged multiple attempts to obstruct justice. people connected to the trump administration or congress called him potentially trying to influence. flynn even gave mueller a voice mail recording of one of the conversations. a federal judge ordered the public release by may 31st of portions of the mueller report according to flynn, sections that may be redacted. the judge ordered releases of transcripts of flynn's conversations with russian officials during the transition and the transcript of the voice mail flynn gave mueller. adam schiff says he's ready to take enforcement action against the justice department for not complying with his subpoena for counter intelligence information from the special counsel's probe. >> they can't even give 450 pages to a democratic congress but gave ultimately a million pages of discovery to the republican congress. they have been able to provide no justification for that double standard and hypocrisy.
2:06 am
they're going to have to defend that in court if they press this. >> schiff told reporters the committee will hold a meeting next week to take unspecified action against the justice department for not handing over the documents. a letter obtained by cnn reveals the justice department offered to show committee members a less redacted version of mueller o's report. the house judiciary committee already did that after the department declined to provide the panel with the unredacted mueller report and supporting evidence. president trump announcing his broad plan to reform border security and legal immigration, calling for changes that would favor young educated immigrants instead of those with family ties to the u.s. the measure calls for a points based system, that would favor self-sufficient immigrants who learn english and pass a civics exam. >> random selection is contrary to american values, under the

so many people made it clear that their purpose in life, their motivation for making sure they came home safe, the reason i needed to make sure they came home safe if they were in my vehicle is they wanted to get home to the people they loved and realizing that, you know, i'm a grown man, i'm an officer, i'm a mayor, and i have no idea what it's like to be in love. that situation became more and more untenable in my mind while i was serving, and so i think it did kind of push me over the edge when i could have found more excuses to just take my time oncoming out. >> fox's steve hilton asking president trump what he thought of having a publicly guy rival for the white house. listen. >> don't you think it's just great to see the fact that you've got a guy that on the stage with his husband and it's normal. >> i think it's absolutely fine. i do. >> isn't it a sign of great progress in the country that that's just --

2:33 am
images of iranian freighters that have been modified showing large areas of the decks removed to carry missiles. the government has not provided proof the ships carrying missiles or other munitions. >> president trump is trying to curb the intensifying conflict with iran. the nil"the new york times" repe president told patrick shanahan he does not want to go to war. it was underscored at a brief white house photo op yesterday. >> mr. president, are we going to war with iran? >> i hope not. >> the president searching for a diplomatic way out of this iranian crisis. let's bring in senior international correspondent frederik pleitgen live again for us this morning in teheran. >> reporter: hi christine, the iranians continue to say they don't want any escalation in the
2:34 am
crisis. they believe it's the u.s. that is the one that is escalating anything. they say anything they are doing in the persian gulf is defensive in nature. the foreign minister reiterated at this point in time, the iranians are not willing to hold negotiations with the trump administration. the iranians are saying that before they do that, they want to see the u.s. lift punishing sanctions before they're going into negotiations with the u.s. they want to sell their oil on international markets and they want european companies and any companies to be able to invest in iran without having to face u.s. backlash, without having to face u.s. sanctions. one of the things the foreign minister said in the past he wants the u.s. to go back in the nuclear agreement as well. judging by what we're hearing from the white house and president trump's advisers, that does not look like it's something that would be in the cards anytime soon.
2:35 am
as far as the new intelligence is concerned, we have not heard denials coming out of teheran. the iranian ambassador gave an interview where he said look, the iranians are not looking to start any conflict, they are not preparing for conflict in the persian gulf region but they are preparing to defend themselves they say so the iranians are saying any moves they are making in the persian gulf, defensive in nature. >> fred pleitgen, thanks, fred. attorney general bill barr says explanations he has been given for the origin don't hang together, telling fox news during a visit to el salvador that he has more questions today than when he fers started investigating the -- first started investigating the investigation. >> people have to find out what the government was doing during that period. if we're worried about foreign influence, for the same reason we should be worried about
2:36 am
whether government officials abused their power and put their thumb on the scale. and so i'm not saying that happened but i'm saying we have to look at that. >> cnn reporting earlier this week, barr has appointed a top federal prosecutor to look into the genesis of the russia investigation and enlisted the help of the cia and director of national intelligence. president trump announcing his broad plan to reform border security and legal immigration calling for changes that would favor young educated immigrants, instead of those with family ties to the united states. the measure calls for a points based system that would favor highly skilled, financially self-sufficient immigrants who learn english and pass a civics exam. >> random selection is contrary to american values. under the senseless rules of the current system, we're not able to give preference to a doctor, a researcher, a student who graduated number one in his
2:37 am
class from the finest colleges in the world. we discriminate against genius. we discriminate against brilliance. we won't anymore once we get this passed. >> trump cast the measure as a c -- the plan faces an up hill battle. democrats are all but certain to oppose it calling the changes drastic and inhumane. as expected it did not propose legal status for dreamers, that issue remains unresolved. let's talk about it "washington post" white house correspondent tolu. good morning, happy friday. >> let's start with the immigrati immigration proposal. what is it if it doesn't address daca, and what's the reception among the republican party? >> this is a little bit weird because this is basically a political document. this is something that the president can campaign on in
2:38 am
2020 but it does not seem to have much support. obviously it does not have support from democrats who who trashed it. it doesn't do a number of the things that republicans have called for in restricting immigration overall, so it's sort of confusing as to why the white house would put this out knowing that it's not going to move through congress. it's dead on arrival in a congress led in part by democrats, and knowing that the president said he was going to be able to bring democrats and republicans together. bring everyone into a room and solve some of the thorny problems of the country. he left democrats out of the process and he's produced a policy that does not have support from any democrats and is bleeding support from a number of republicans. >> there's a lot that didn't get touched there, guest worker programs and daca, there's more specifici specificity about what he wants had his border wall to look like. you have fantastic reporting in
2:39 am
the "washington post," you know, for example, that he wants it to be painted flat black so it gets really hot and he's very specific telling us how sharp he wants the points to be, and what kind of injuries people could sustain trying to cross into the united states. >> the president has been fix sated on the design of the border wall. he's thrown himself into this process in sort of calling for specific designs, he has called for the border wall to be painted black, something that border officials have said would be costly, and cause the cost of maintenance to go up because once you paint a wall, you have to keep going back and painting it, in part because the president wants the wall to be intimidating, and called for there to be pointy spikes at the top, so people would look at it and be afraid they would get injured, and has said people would be injured as they tried to get over the wall and that's something he supports because he does not want as many people trying to cross the border as we have seen over the past few
2:40 am
weeks. it's interesting that the president has thrown himself so fully into the design of the border wall, causing them to scramble and go back and forth based on his personal whims. he's heavily involved. >> sort of different than designing a golf course or a hotel lobby. he seems to have the micro management. >> this is indeed a crisis. let's turn back to the story this morning, the confrontation with iran, and miscommunication seems to sum it all up, both sides misreading one another and congress seems to be left in the dark at this point. here's lindsey graham. >> i'm sure there's a good reason to do what they did. i have confidence in secretary pompeo and the national security team but i'm in charge of the state department's funding and i would like to know why we took the action we did, and i think a lot of senators feel like they are in the dark, and they
2:41 am
dropped the ball on this. >> congress clearly left out of conversation and you can't help but think the tpp might have helped us confront china with our allies, staying in the jcpoa or the iran nuclear deal might have helped confront iran, what is the administration's goal here? >> it's not really clear what their goal is because we have heard an inconsistent message from the white house and inconsistent message to the congress. that's why you're hearing so much frustration from republican and democratic members of congress. my sense is that the president does not want to be involved in another war even if some of his a advisers are preparing for that. the president has told top officials he does not want to get into a war with iran, he wants to have talks with iran. it may be something similar to what we saw with neorth korea. and claims credit for staving off a war, even if there's no peace deal. it's clear the president would
2:42 am
rather have diplomacy instead of war, especially going into 2020. his base and voters did not want to be involved in a long-term war in the middle east. even advisers are pushing for that, he seems to be pulling them back from the brinks, saying no war with iran right now. >> kind of a good cop bad cop dynamic, with john bolton being the bad cop, and president trump being the good cop. have a good weekend. >> thank you. 42 minutes past the hour. america's largest retailer walmart says it will raise prices on some products because of president trump's tariffs on china. its cfo brett brigs said we are going to continue to keep prices low, that's who we are, however, increased tariffs will lead to increased prices for our customers. he did not say which items would become more expensive. here's what kevin hasset, the president's chairman of the
2:43 am
